For the month of February we are featuring babywearing stories from our BWI Twin Cities members! Read about his or her journey and how BWI Twin Cities has played a role.

*Hello Amanda!*

Every time I wear my daughter, my load is lightened. I feel empowered to go places I’ve never gone, I have a newfound sense of independence. All I really need is a carrier/wrap and some comfortable shoes- I can figure out everything else as I go.

I don’t have to choose between being in a best friend’s wedding and being an attentive mother.

I have confidence in my body’s strength and resilience. My daughter’s needs are not a hassle when I can wear her. I am inspired and encouraged by other BWI parents who share the common love of keeping their babies close.

Thank you for sharing the love Amanda!
